Gum Recession, Long Teeth - Newton, MA

Have a Healthy, Balanced Gumline Again

Qualifications Defeat Complications

Gum recession has many preventable causes—aggressive brushing, tobacco use, and poor dental hygiene among them. If you don’t get these habits under control you can lose a valuable protective layer for your teeth. When your gums begin to recede, your smile becomes uneven, with some teeth appearing longer than others. Without sufficient root coverage your teeth can also become temperature-sensitive. If it continues untreated, gum recession can lead to gum disease, tooth loss, and jawbone loss. Dr. Noah Orenstein can help you avoid all of these complications with proven treatment for gum recession in Newton, MA.

As a surgically trained, board-certified prosthodontist—one of few in the area—Dr. Orenstein has extensive qualifications in treating gum recession. After dental school, he completed an additional three years of advanced training in a variety of treatments. He then went on to achieve board certification, exceeding the minimum educational requirements for the field and keeping abreast of all the latest treatments and technologies available. This includes innovative protocols such as the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™), a minimally invasive alternative to gum grafting that Dr. Orenstein is certified to provide.

Cutting-Edge Treatment, Without the Cutting

If your smile has been spoiled by gum recession you may be concerned that you may never have healthy, attractive, comfortable gums again. The truth is, the solution is already there in your mouth. While gum grafting involves taking soft tissues from one part of your mouth and attaching them where your gums have receded, Dr. Orenstein offers the less invasive Pinhole Surgical Technique.

For this treatment, Dr. Orenstein makes a small hole in the gum tissue directly above the receded tissue. Inserting a special dental instrument into the hole, he can loosen and reposition the existing gum tissue, then pull it down to cover areas of recession. With his cosmetic dentistry training, he’s able to shape the gums around your teeth for a natural, consistent, and attractive appearance. He then uses collagen strips to keep the gums in place. PST enables him to restore the full health and function of your gums without using scalpels or sutures!
